1. If I am a BCLC Credential holder, can I apply for membership in the Christian Care Network? How do I apply?

    You do not have to apply for the CCN listing. When you receive a credential from any of the credentialing boards, you are automatically eligible to be listed in the CCN at no extra cost. Simply follow the directions on how to provide the necessary data for your listing which are located on the BCLC website (under Christian Care Network: CCN Account Setup). You can also edit your listing online to update information. Initially, only licensed professionals were eligible to be listed and now, credential holders in all four BCLC levels can be listed. You must be a member in AACC in order to be listed in the CCN. Go to www.aacc.net/shop/login.php to get started.

  2. Why should I join the BCLC?

    We have listed several benefits on the BCLC web site. Your attractive credential communicates to clients and colleagues alike that you have completed a thorough and professional review. It is a public statement that you are qualified to provide ethical and competent Life Coaching from a Christian perspective. You can refer inquiring clients to www.thebclc.com to review the AACC code of ethics, doctrinal standards and credentialing requirements. The strength of credentialing numbers provides greater influence and presence in the national and international community.

  3. What are the “practical” benefits of being a BCLC credential holder?

    The BCLC provides support, prayer and counsel on ethical and professional issues for credential holders. We are trustworthy advocates.

    The BCLC credential is a public statement about your personal integrity, life coaching experience, spiritual character, and life coaching philosophy.

    There is a “drop box” on our web site that will allow you to print the main BCLC logo as well as your specific credential logo on your business card, office stationary, advertising, etc.

    You have access to the BCLC Board leadership to express your concerns and to offer your valued suggestions for program improvement.

    You will have opportunities to receive “credential holders only” discounts on AACC products, CE programs, Geneva Institute events, training events, and AACC Conferences.

    You will receive opportunities and benefits (professional, insurance, financial, etc.).

  4. Why is the BCLC application so comprehensive and detailed?

    It is the invariable commitment of the AACC to provide credentialing opportunities that are legitimate. The BCLC Board has set a very high standard in order to provide and protect a sacred trust as Christian Caregivers. When you receive a credential from one of the AACC Credentialing Boards, it commands professional respect and national recognition. Our requirements also make a clear value and quality statement to comparable secular agencies.
